The test oath--Southern members — interesting wedding.

Washington, December 9.
--It is understood the constitutionality of the act of Congress presenting the test oath is now before the Supreme Court in the application of A. A. Garland, of Arkansas. The whole question will be presented on Friday next.

The Southern members elected to Congress are still here. Some of them, believing that it will be a long time before they are admitted, contemplate returning home and remaining there until the door is opened to receive them.

There was quite a crowd of visitors at the White House to-day, including members of Congress. The Representatives from Ohio and Kentucky were among those who were admitted to an interview with the President.

Friday evening last, a wedding of an interesting nature took place in Washington between Colonel N. W. Sanders, of Louisiana, and Miss. Cora V. L. Scott (formerly Hatch), of spiritualism reputation. Rev. John Pierpont, poet, performed the marriage ceremony.
